    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

An excellent article innoculatedinvestor.

 

Classes that serve to promote the "strategy" of buy-and-hold (to death or margin call) ought be relegated from the R2D2-esque Huntsman Hall to the much more appropriate confines of the ENIAC's dungeon in the basement of DRL.  At the very least, Siegel's seminars should be held within the spiffy first floor of Annenberg and roundly classified under the auspices of "Media and Communications." 

 

While biting my lip a bit about the "value" of his work with John Bogle, I am reminded of the only joke from the Simpson's that I ever found funny, in which Dr. Hibbert proclaims:

Hibbert: Son, I'm afraid that leg is hanging by a thread.
Lubchenko: Lubchenko must return to game!
Hibbert: [chuckles] Your playing days are over, my friend.
But, you can always fall back on your degree in ...
[reads chart] communications!? Oh, dear Lord!

 

Am also wondering how many other Penn alums across the ZH community are craving either a breakfast platter from Izzy and Zoey's or a wedge from Koch's this morning ... mmmmm, cardiac arrest inducing lean pastrami with Russian and cole slaw.

Great post... all the evidence for doom and destruction is right in front of us.... yet we're helpless and powerless to do much of anything. Fighting the system is a lost cause at this point.

I can't tell you how much I hunger for the food-for-thought which is offered in abundance at this web-site.

Thank you I.I. & Z.H.
